I remember that we had a discussion about this building before. It was called "Volkstag"...Please see the following link: http://www.danzig-online.pl/bud/senat.html










Volsktag was built in 19th Century.

Now

Non-existent buildings, which tourist guides would like to see in the pre-war form (or earlier, like Teutonic Knights Castle for example) as a part of today's Gdansk.

Fortifications - 36,5%
Granary Island - 34,9%
Coal Market - 23,8%
Great Synagogue - 15,9%
Teutonic Knights Castle - 14,3%
Hevelius Townhouse - 7,9%
Porches - 7,9%
Elizabethan Theatre - 6,4%
Long Gardens, including the Palace of Mniszchów - 6,4%
Other - less than 5%

The idea of Gdańsk reconstruction was to back forward to city's Golden Age, when it was closely connected to Poland. That's why they did it on this way. "Prussian architecture" been considerd shi..y and - fo course - German ;-)

Lot's of "Prussian Architecture" been annihilated just after the war, and now, in the recent history; not only in Gdańsk but widely throughout Poland.

I do not understand ? That's a percentage of destruction or a part of the city which its covered? Synagogue was completly choped down before war And please do not recover Teutonic Castle Do not recover anything - preserve!

But tenement houses from the previous page were all built when Gdansk was under Polish Crown (15-18th Century), so I do not really understand this unwillingness to restore Polish cultural heritage. On the other hand, I know why citizens of Gdansk do not want to reconstruct 19-20th Century architecture...

And LOT building, Zieleniak, Organika Trade, Mercure-Hevelius Hotel or Wybrzeze Theatre in the historical part of the city are really fine examples of this reconstruction

They lay apart of former city walls and green (planty).
Who said they ought to rebuild everything? Nonsense. Besides - LOT (was) great, Zielaniak or Wybrzeże are really fine buildings.

Is Zieleniak better than pre-war Villa of President of Senat?

Before WW2


Now (banner in "Polish style")


Is Wybrzeze Theatre better than pre-war Theatre?

Before WW2


Now


Of course, people of Gdansk shouldn't rebuild everything. But if they can't even match pre-war design and beautiful architecture, I think that detailed reconstruction is the answer.

I don't really want to see more sh.t like this:

The synagogue of Gdansk was one of the most beautiful in the world. I'd love to see it reconstructed.

What is in its place today, btw?

A Rizzi building... Well, could turn out interesting. Is that project actually working out, proposed, in the line?

But I'd rather like to see its lot empty for a while and a reconstruction one day.

Small Gdańsk Jewish community no longer have claims to this terrain (they gain smth in Wrzeszcz - also a Synagogue) and this kind of Theatre is no less historical then Synagogue.

I will not argue





Some people like modern architecture (simplicity, glass, iron, steel, etc.)...and some don't. One man's garbage is another man's art.
